Apart from dumpling, vermicelli is another food to help me with my nostalgia.
Vermicelli is a commonly seen food in northern part of China, especially in winter. Just imagine, it’s chilling outside, and you have a bowl of braised pork with vermicelli on your table. All the coldness will be gone.
Oil, pork (cut into slices), potato ( chopped into medium pieces), vermicelli, light soy sauce, dark soy sauce, salt, water.
When the water becomes less, and potato softens, put in vermicelli. The vermicelli I used is easy to cook. Only takes five minutes to be cooked. And no need to be soaked in the water before cooking. Please read instruction on the vermicelli’s pack before cooking.
Vermicelli will be softened. Then stir it with potato and pork.
You can use chopsticks to stir vermicelli, because it’s easy for them to stick together.
After around 5 minutes, the dish is done when vermicelli is done. You’d better try it to make it’s truly done. Add in salt. And stir evenly.
Vermicelli will become transparent. And potato also tasty for braised with pork and soy sauce for such a long time.
